Developing digital health projects is knowledge intensive work. The question facing many project teams is how we manage this information. Knowledge management encompasses the many unique but related facets of creating, organizing, sharing, and using information and experiences. In a field that evolves as rapidly as digital health, robust knowledge management practices are extremely important for project teams to keep pace and become more efficient.
